    Er... Just in case I'm missing something fairly critical...

    We've only just left the village, correct? We crossed the bridge, saw the bushed, and got ambushed by wolves?

    Maybe, but... Honestly, I'd expect some of the villagers to have seen the fight.

    And, well... we're close enough that I don't think it's possible to convince Alice to not head back. We need healing, and we need to warn the village about the danger, and we need to tell them of Heather's demise.

    We also need to get some advice on how to not die, which we clearly need.

    Huh. I'd unconsciously assumed there wouldn't be a pack of starving wolves a few minutes from town, figured we must be an hour or so out. I wouldn't have said "oh, it's sooooooo long back to town" if it's a hop, skip and a jump away.

    I can re-write the post(Or just remove it, depending.)

    Just tell me when you're done re-writing, and I'll do so.

    I think we're ready for the next step. Anyone object to me writing up a "group went back to town, did things, headed back out" kind of post?

    I've just realised that Tiffany shares a forename with Tiffany Aching from the discworld. That's probably appropriate, as I see her in the same sort of role as a village witch.

    That's "Knowledge (heads)" in D&D terminology. Sorry I haven't been active; my cat exploded (I'll spare you the scatological details ) and I had to spend hours at the vet and cleaning up that I'd normally dedicate to fun time.

    I should say, I don't have anything meaningful to add IC. I can make a brief post IC if someone feels that silence is a travesty, but if nobody else feels strongly, I prefer to write only what's significant.

    All right then, time to keep at it.

    Is Alice the only one who's still seriously injured?(I was looking at sheets.)

    After we finish here, which should be soon, will we be resting in town, before trying again, or will we head directly out?

    From a logical standpoint, the answer is drop the rescue, but from an adventuring one, that's a no. Resting first, and actually thinking a bit in tactical terms is probably a good start.

    I don't think resting in town is a good idea. Right now, our reputation is getting worse every second and the sooner we are out there, the sooner we can restore it.

    I have a couple of heals left on the the belt if anyone needs it.

    Staying alive is more important than reputation, but...

    We currently have a vote for resting, and a vote for not.
    Anyone else?
